Another Sample Pet Portrait - Dreamy

Dreamy
8x10 inches
Pastel pencils and pan pastels on Pastelmat
Another sample portrait done - if this image looks a little familiar to you, I did draw it once before in coloured pencil for an ACEO. The reference photo for this and the other little artwork was provided with kind permission by Tanakawho
from Flickr creative commons. I so enjoy doing the animal portraits on the Pastelmat, so ordered some more yesterday.

What a gorgeous little Cavalier King Charles Spaniel! Such bright eyes, such a look of love on her face. Well done, Karen!

He is....dreamy! This is a beautiful portrait Karen! I'm working on an oil pastel piece right now - It's been eons since I've used oil pastels. It's fun to sprinkle new things in now and again. I haven't been good about being real active on redbubble, but it is fun to visit there every few weeks, so that's what I'm doing. Thanks for talking me into joining!

My pleasure Deb and I look forward to seeing your oil pastel piece - I haven't worked with oil pastels since I was a kid!!!

Hey Karen,

Your work was a big hit with the Calligraphy Guild - they were all enquiring about how to get hold of the Velour paper and Pastelmat.

Another awesome artwork - Woof!

Cheers,

Cindy
